How do I replace the long screw that holds the door up on the door hinges,on a '97 gmc Sonoma?


I have done a 100 of these.

The hardest part is going to be to reinstall the spring on the lower hinge arm. this is not a screw but rather a pin.
There are two hinges that hold the door to body.
when the upper and lower pins are removed the door will come away from body, it is important that before you remove the pins you take a look at the hinges.
Pay close att. to the way the hinges sit inside each other and the way the pins go in. see if they go from top to bottom or from bottom to top. also note where the copper bushings sit in hinges. each hinge has one pin and two copper bushings top go into hinge.
Over time the pins and bushings wear out ,making door hard to open and close. When the pins and bushings get so bad that the bushing is worn out and then the pins are now wearing into the hinge hole itself then this get tricky. if hinge hole is egg shaped the new bushings will not last. the door will hang again in a few weeks. this is where is get costly, the hinges now need replacing. i have gotten good at welding the holes and filing them back to shape but this takes skill or hole will be wrong and bushing will not fit or line up.

Here is a youtube video to help you.
Take note. put jack stands under door with cloth to avoid scratching door.this is to hold door when pins are removed. have somone help you, they will hold door on stands. the wires will still run through door, pull door away from body a little to allow room to work.remove the spring, it will fall out as you remove pins, remove old bushings, clean hinge area and holes,next install new bushings, apply lube to holes for pins and on bushings, slide door back on frame hinges and install pins, next slide lock washers on pins to hold pins. last is the spring. you will need a spring tool, you may rent one at auto parts store. hope this helps good day.

Press heater zone buttons, doesn't change areas. doesn't open and closevent blocks


There are tubes connected to the back of the control unit that go to door actuators. Get a cheep had vacuum pump and hook it to each actuator and see if each door opens and the diaphragms inside are not leaking if they all work replace the control unit. If the doors have broken off and are laying in the bottom of the heating unit you need to replace the whole unit under dash. On extreme 4x4 or the show trucks they had a repair kit for dodge and chevy. The doors open and close just like a cheep plastic tool box with no hinges just a piece of thin plastic that bends back and forth till it breaks. The kit comes with metal hinges and new doors

How do you replace the drivers door hinge?


The hingepin is available in some of the help kits at the parts store. If you are just trying to make the door tight again there is no reason to unbolt the hinge. You just grind or chisel the top shoulder of the pin away and then punch the old pin through the bottom.

Put the new pin through the hinge and bend a shoulder on the new pin. Some may even use a nut with threads.

To install the pin or replace the hinge you should open the door and try to brace the bottom of the door with a bucket or books or anything where you can keep the door from changing position. Once braced, a hinge will just unbolt and you can swap it with the new part. Do one hinge at a time if you have 2 on a door.

How do you change the bottom door hinge on a 02 silverado divers side


Before you start if your new hinge isn't painted you should do so to keep it from rusting.
Open the door all the way then you need to support the door so it won't sag or move. Now take the bolts out that hold the hinge, once you have all the bolts out take out the old hinge noting it's position, now insert the new hinge in the same position and replace the bolts, you're done.

How hard is it to replace a door on a 1997 honda accord 4 door. Specificly the front drivers side door.


It's not too hard if you get one with the same features and interior panel. If you have to change the door panel though it's no big deal. Don't go unplugging all the little wires in the door because there is a main plug inside of a rubber boot in between your door hinges: Pop the little pin out of the little holder bar, remove the 12mm bolts that hold the door on. If you don't get help holding the door you can scratch some stuff up. You might have to remove your fender, don't know on this one.

Window off track


Looking at the opened door from the inside remove the philips screw near the upper hinge. Pry the speaker grill off with a thin blade putty knife, starting at the bottom left and work to the right. Remove speaker screws and the three screws in the recessed plastic spaces behind. Remove the square covers behind the handle and in the arm rest. Remove the 2 philips screws exposed. Start to pry from the top hinge side between the plastic door panel and the metal door. Work your way around the door until plastic clips release. Once the bottom of the panel and sides are free, lift the panel up and off the door being careful not to pull wiring and door handle mechanism loose. Unplug the as much of the wiring as you can and support the panel so as to not stretch the wiring. Pop the plastic retaining clip on the door handle connecting rod and lift the rod out of the handle. Slowly peel back the vinyl/rubber door cover stuck to the metal door. The window is held in the lower track with two clips that are bolted to the track. Unbolt by raising or lowering the window and using a 10MM socket on the nuts to loosen. Remove the window seal along trhe bottom of the window opening by prying straight up. You can then remove the window and re-epoxy in the lower clips and reassemble window in reverse order.
